- Items are subject to change depending on weather and farm availability.
- Tip 1: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.

A great appetizer for holiday entertaining or hide them for yourself.
The appetizer of choice in most Japanese restaurants, edamame is an immature soybean for mature eaters though kids & immature adults love 'em as well! To prepare: boil water with salt, add the edamame (no peeling or cutting necessary), cook for 5-6 minutes & strain. You can either serve with the pods or peel and pop out the beans to add to salads, pasta, etc.
Storage: Freezer for 1+ year -- they last a long time
Cauliflower has an exceptional nutritional density, which means it contains substantial amounts of vitamins and minerals with very few calories. Since boiling reduces the levels of cauliflower compounds, with losses of 20–30% after five minutes, our frozen cauliflower solves the problem by letting you boil in the bag.
Other preparation methods, such as steaming, microwaving, and stir frying, have no significant effect. Shaul Farm

If you haven't seen watermelon radishes before, you might think they aren't real. How mother nature manage to make the color magenta in a radish is truly a mystery. Festive and mild, these will be a big hit on the crudite platter. Common Hands

Our favorite really ugly vegetable. When peeled, celeriac's flesh resembles a turnip or potato and tastes like a subtle blend of celery and parsley. Additionally, half a cup contains only 30 calories, no fat and provides an excellent source of dietary fiber. Fledging Crow
Storage: Bag and store In the refrigerator. Do not wash prior to storing. Celeriac will last for months.
